Winlaton, Machine Pond
Water Supply and Drainage
Historic Ordnance Survey map evidence shows a Machine Pond on this site. It is unclear from the 1st edition Ordnance Survey plan whether this is the name of the pond or its function. The name suggests that it was for water supply to to an engine of some sort, possibly associated with the nearby quarrying.
